Saturday was exceptional! Over 250 pounds, and more importantly gained much valued experience in the artist's book market.
Stars on Saturday were Yolande & Charlotte, who behaved impeccably as BIAD representatives, and helped Jatinder achieve a double whammy - one systematic journey sold to Maria from the tate collection, and another to one of the regional Art College's collection.
A lady from Barcelona felt Charlotte's work was so perceptive of her home that she bought one of the chine colle printed books.
Amiee was, I was told, exceptional on Friday, and I think all of her work has sold - drats I haven't got any copies, and apparently I have to eat my shorts when I next see her!
I think it would be interesting to see if we could with the help of the library at Gosta build our own collection? Wouldn't that be even more inspirational!
A very large and stately venue. Each table adorned with a pristine white table cloth!
Below are a few examples of folded silk screened books produced by students during specialist workshops held in BIAD printrooms by Kate McMorrine and Lucie Sheridan
The systematic unfolding journey seen in the left hand corner was again applauded by many
This is from Claire Whittaker's table - a flip book about a mouse trying to steal a piece of cheese. The book is set inside a mouse trap, and you're not entirely sure whether it's safe to touch!
dettmer otto - loved his work, his processes, both conceptual and technical
On technique, this book is made from stencil painting

Stephen Fowler - apart from his extravagant tache, his work was also a sight to see - another very interesting production process
